Conspiracy Theory

busted Randy Quaid mugshot

Subject: Randy Quaid

Charges: In September 24, 2009, Randy Quaid and his wife Evi were arrested in Texas for allegedly defrauding an innkeeper, burglary, and conspiracy, stemming from a $10,000 dispute at a Santa Barbara, California hotel. Later that evening, the two were released on bail.

After the Quaids skipped out on their third court date, October 29, the Santa Barbara District Attorney's Office filed bench warrants for their arrest and extradition from Texas. Although subsequent arrest warrants were quashed, after failing to appear at court on April 12 and 13, 2010, $40,000 in bail was forfeited and arrest warrants for the couple were issued again on April 14, 2010.

Date: Mugshot taken on April 26, 2010

Verdict: On April 28, 2010, felony charges were dropped against Randy Quaid after he and his wife were briefly jailed. The Quaids appeared in court after missing several other court appearances. Prosecuters were unable to bring a case against the actor but his wife plead no contest to a misdemeanor count of defrauding an innkeeper and will be on probation for three years. She will also be required to serve 240 hours of community service.
